Permit Application

Notice is hereby given that Allan Myers Delaware, Inc. having a facility at 1230 Railcar Avenue, Wilmington, Delaware, has requested a federally enforceable 7 DE Admin. Code 1102 construction permit (Permit: APC-2020/0058–CONSTRUCTION (SM)) for a 2 MMBtu/hr asphalt heater fired on No. 2 fuel oil as a backup to natural gas. The heater will be permitted to emit 0.66 Ton of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), 0.53 Ton of Carbon Monoxide (CO), 0.053 Ton of Particulate Matter (PM), 0.07 Ton of Total Hydrocarbon Content (THC), and 0.004 Ton of Sulfur Oxides (SOx) per rolling 12 months.

Allan Myers Delaware, Inc. requests a limit of 250 hours of operation per rolling 12-month period to burn No. 2 fuel oil in the facility’s asphalt heater in the event that natural gas is curtailed due to interruptions from the supplier. This limit is necessary to restrict Allan Myers Delaware, Inc.’s potential to emit air pollutants, and the limit will be enforceable by the EPA and the state. Total estimated emissions from the facility are 13.35 Tons of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), 34.35 Tons of Carbon Monoxide (CO), 13.72 Tons of Particulate Matter (PM), 11.56 Tons of Total Hydrocarbon Content (THC), and 0.92 Ton of Sulfur Oxides (SO2) per rolling 12 month period.

Upon completion of construction, the Department will incorporate the operating conditions and limits of the 7 DE Admin. Code 1102 Construction permit into the facility’s existing Synthetic Minor Permit (Permit: APC-2016/0026-OPERATION (Amendment 2)(NSPS)(SM)) via an Administrative Amendment.
